What's With Me and Stripes?

I have always had a soft spot for stripes. I don't know what it is but whenever I enter a store, I am immediately drawn to the stripes. It is like I have an internal stripe detector lol. Anyway, I was so delighted to stumble upon the Spring 2011 fashion trends page on Elle.com. It was here where I discovered that stripes are listed as the pattern of the season. Yay :)

These are some of my fashion icons in stripes. I love how sophisticated Olivia Palermo makes stripes look. While Kim Kardashian makes them look cozy and casual.

As most of you lovely and dedicated readers know, I recently went to Palm Springs where I managed to squeeze in a bit of shopping (Thrift shop heaven by the way). Once I got home, I realized there was a bit of a theme going on! Here are my most recent purchases from left to right: Old Navy striped sweater $25, Target striped tank $16, Wet Seal striped cardigan $25 and vintage striped Capris. $8. *Warning...do not attempt to wear all of these items together lol.

Thanks for stopping by :)
